    I'm not aware of any. I believe they are all just low quality live recordings. Hopefully in a few months I'll have some studio demos.

    Search youtube for "Soul Tramp" and you'll see several videos.

    I've been rocking my tramp as well as of late. Still sounds fantastic, although no matter what tubes I run through it, I get horrible tube rattle at higher volumes. So much so, that I am seriously considering getting a head cab made for it, as when I run it through an extension cab only, without its onboard speaker, I can avoid the dreaded rattle. Which is a damn shame really, as the combo cab that Don made for this is a killer looking tweed. But, if it makes this beauty into a more usable amp, then sacrifices must be made.

    Gman, there's a couple of things you can try.

    1) Put a thin foam (hardware store weatherstripping) gasket between the chassis and back panel. Also where the faceplate meets the top of the cab. Try this first. If it doesn't work go to step 2.

    2) put same gasket between the baffle board and whee it attaches (top & bottom) to the cab.
